Note: On page 41 of the hardcover version, the paragraph “Genomics researchers at the University of Pennsylvania tested this hypothesis by calculating the number of cells in the human colon and comparing it to the number of cells in the colon of a giant blue whale…” should be tied to this citation: A. F. Caulin and C. C. Maley, “Peto’s Paradox: Evolution’s Prescription for Cancer Prevention,” Trends Ecol Evol 26 (2011): pp. 175-182.
